Ok, my interview confirmation said: you have an interview with Kele. I’ve studied for an interview based on the lead singer and guitarrist and when I arrived at venue the tour manager said that Gordon was ready to chat with me.
So this interview it’s 80% improvvisation!
Gordon Moakes is the bassist of the english group Bloc Party.
Bloc Party are a British indie rock band, composed of Kele Okereke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Russell Lissack (lead guitar), Gordon Moakes (bass guitar, synths, backing vocals, glockenspiel), and Matt Tong (drums, backing vocals). Their brand of music is said to have been drawn from such bands as The Cure,Mogwai, Siouxsie and the Banshees. The band was formed at the 1999 Reading Festival by Okereke and Lissack. They went through a variety of names before settling on Bloc Party in 2003. Moakes joined the band after answering an advert in NME magazine, while Tong was picked via an audition. Bloc Party got their break by giving BBC Radio 1 DJ Steve Lamacq and Franz Ferdinand’s lead singer, Alex Kapranos, a copy of their demo “She’s Hearing Voices”. In February 2005, the band released their debut album Silent Alarm. It was critically acclaimed and was named ‘Indie Album of the Year’ at the 2006 PLUG Awards and NME Album of the year which both honour indie music. That year, the record was also certified platinum in Britain. The band built on this success in 2007 with the release of their second studio album, A Weekend in the City, which reached a peak of number two in the UK Albums Chart and number twelve in the Billboard 200. In August 2008, Bloc Party released their third studio record, Intimacy. The band went on a hiatus in October 2009 to focus on side projects, and reunited in September 2011, releasing their fourth album, Four, in 2012. As of May 2012, Bloc Party have sold two million albums worldwide.

Sorry if I put it two weeks later than the broadcast but I was searching for the cutting version (from all the yelles of the club’s crew during our chatting) but I cannot find it again on my hd, damn.
It was a wonderful chat. About 30 min. They are so talented and nice people (then we talk a lot about everything, and drink beer, of course).

Tere’s interview with Matthew Edward Murphy from The Wombats.
Lovely guys, I interviewed them the same day directly for the archive of Iday’s festival and love their humor, totally.
There’s a nice transcript in Italian for the ones who wants.
